I am a graduate of CWRU in 1972 but a Buckeye fan since 195?. I daily drive past Woody Hayes Quaker Stadium where Woody made his head coaching debut, where Dave Leggett played quarterback before leading the Buckeyes to the 1954 National Championship, and also where Cie Grant terrorized quarterbacks long before that memorable day in January 2003.

I remember the trip from New Philadelphia to Canton to visit relatives seemed to take forever. Now we drive farther than that for dinner.

I was worried when the goalie went down but the replacement has done quite well to say the least.

With respect to the basketball team, maybe discuss what changed from early in the season to now.  Were those big non-conference wins not as good as they seemed at the time?  Or is the B1G really that tough, particularly on the road.  There was a post recently that showed most B1G wins this season across the conference are home wins.

OSU is in FBS.  NDSU is in FCS.

There are scholarships in FCS.  The limit in FBS is 85 and FCS is 65.  There are also scholarships in D2 but I don't know how many.  The only NCAA division without scholarships is D3

They have past history of moving up.  They won 5 national titles in the D2 playoffs from 83-90 (playoffs started in 1973) and 3 titles in the D2 poll from 65-69.

That is 16 titles since 1965 which is in Mt. Union territory for success.
